Boston Festival Oct 2013 101

Night of Festivals Touring

Successful events in Nottingham (September 2013) and Boston, Lincolnshire (October 2013) will be followed with intensive Festival delivery in Slough (May 2014) and Leicester (August 2014).

ArtReach is half way through delivering its ACE Strategic Touring funded Night of Touring project.

Despite challenging weather the latest event in Boston was an unqualified success, with large crowds enjoying the unprecedented sight of Mandinga Arts Day of the Dead costume sections and Giant Skeleton parading through the Market Place, and it’s extraordinary range and design of Animal Farm costumes and puppets wowing all ages and nationalities. The resilient dancers and musicians of Paraiso Samba gave their all despite the rain and chill, with each site specific performance attracting a large, appreciative crowd.

 

Night of Festivals Touring includes three new commissions from artists Alinah Azadeh, David Hindmarch and Stephen Jon. Roll on the next event in Slough!
